Best aluminum polish

So who makes the best polish for non coated aluminum. I am wanting something that will take an oxidized aluminum to a shine like chrome. I have heard about wet sanding with 400 and 600 grit sand paper before applying a polish but what polish is the best? FYI its for a semi not a pick up.

Google Heavy Metal Polish. I use it on aluminum, stainless, and chrome. There is 3 different colors. Had really good luck with it.

Re: Best aluminum polish

I found some zephyrs at a Petro the other day so I bought it to see what it can do. I'm not a big fan of mothers I prefer meguires instead.

Adams metal polish 1&2 works wonders and is very easy to use.
